Thanks for the insight and congratulations on bringing that gorgeous 1961 Ideor back to life!

Like you (I'm guessing because you said you were retired), I grew up with friction rather than indexed shifting, so it doesn't put me off in principle that the Motobecane would be a return to that kind of shifting. Of course, it has been ages since I have had to do it--my regular bike is a single speed--so I will have to see how it feels when I try out the bike.

Again, thanks for the cautionary note though.
